There usually isn't a difference between the CPU location on a microATX board and an ATX one. But that doesn't mean there will or won't be enough tubing to reach to the front of the case.

I think that the included resistors(at least if that's what you used to lower their speed) keeps them at about 1600rpm.

If it's noise you want to keep in check just try to find some Scythe GentleTyphoon AP-15 fans they run at 1850 rpm and are as quiet or quieter than my GTS 250 video card fan at normal idle speeds if the fan speeds up on my video card it is a ton louder.

Sadly all the reputable places I know to buy them are sold out. Something you can do if you have any old 120mm fans is gut them and use them for shrouds particularly on your push fan that will lower the noise some no matter what fans your using. If you have one/both of your fans blowing through a fan guard on your case or attached to the fans themselves that a lot of the time is the cause of undue noise too take them off/cut them out has helped countless people here to eliminate whining and "shuffing" air noise.

I have an H70 coming in the mail due to arrive tomorrow night along with 2 Scythe AP-15's. My question is about set-up. I have seen numerous pictures of people's set-ups. Some people seem to only have the one fan on the inside, with the radiator flush to the case and the fan inside. Other have one fan outside the case, the radiator just inside the case and another fan inside.

Which is best?

Also which is better? pulling cold air from outside the case into the radiator or blowing air from inside the case through the radiator and having another fan outside pulling? I think Corsair said that they preferred the 1st option, but I have heard other say that the latter option is better. Thoughts?

Lastly, Thermal Paste. How is the Corsair Stock thermal paste? Should I use that or go with something else? If something else then what?

Thanks in advance.

IIRC the stock thermal paste is pretty high end (shin-etsu i think), no reason to change it. Having my fans exhausting air out of my case yielded better temps for me, but not everyone will get the same results, I think you should test it yourself
